It just gets better with every listen. Quite possibly one of their best albums...and there are many to choose from with a 40 year career.
Fanatic borrows the energy and spirit of Bebe Le Strange and delivers some great songwriting, all songs by Heart which is rare for a Heart album. If you liked albums like Desire Walks On and Jupiter's Darling...you will love this one. Production by Ben Mink is just as raw as Red Velvet Car, but for some reason it actually works for Fanatic, whereas Red Velvet Car was pretty sloppy and forgettable. 5 stars for sure.
And for the vinyl buyers I can tell you that the quality of pressing and sound is some of the best new vinyl I've bought. 150g and virtually quiet, it's a fine pressing for sure. Nice inner sleeve with lyrics.
